Quote of the Week: 'There needs to be a bright line separating the feds and local police'

"Here is a reason—a very important reason—why there needs to be a bright line separating the federal government and local police forces on immigration. It’s Sheriff Jimmy (J.J.) Jones, of Knox County, Tenn."

—New York Times editorial board member Lawrence Downes, blogging Aug. 22 about Jones’ statement that he would “stack these violators like cordwood in the Knox County Jail,” made in reference to illegal immigrants. Jones posted the statement at knoxsheriff.org after his application for the 287(g) program was denied by ICE.
